and furious and benghazi. you political people are nothing but hacks. a friend told me that what makes up the lie of the mainstream omit and what they moit not submit. i went to the vietnam war. his name is not on that wall. it was not a long time ago. it affects every veteran. you sit there and talk for those people. you're nothing but a propaganda -- guest: i am the guy who broke a lot of the benghazi stories. many outlets have talked about my stories. i consider it to be a very important story been the. i did more reporting and you can look up my stuff online. i was not trying to gloss over the way that veterans felt about john kerry. i was about tryinprovide a trying to provide perspective of his chances in getting through. host: how does foreign policy look going forward? guest: i still think it is going to be a big issue. the report is from the state department and does not look at who it access. there is a question that is lingering -- was this al qaeda? that was not an attack like that then there was the attac. -- like that. we have not thought for a long time -- the u.s. intellig
they still do not have. have. martha: a fox news alert to capitol hill. a classified briefing on benghazi is code you would -- scheduled to get underway right now. a members only meeting in the house with the country's top intelligence officer at the helm at that. a brand new hour in "america's newsroom." we're glad to the have you with us on this wednesday. i'm martha maccallum. bill: i'm bill hemmer. james clapper and officials from other agencies meeting with these law makers after increasing pressure out of congress for answers and nearly three months after the four americans were murdered. martha: we're joined by chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge. she joins us live from capitol hill. what do we hope to learn today, catherine? >> reporter: good morning. last time we had a briefing on the hill for all the members of the house was the first week of september right after the attack or rather the second week of september and today we also expect all the major players including the nation's top intelligence officer, james clapper, the director of national intelligence, th
. number nine, september 11th in benghazi, libya, am was dor chris stevens and three others killed in the attack on the embassy there. american officials first insisted it was spontaneous, sparked by a protest over an anti-muslim film. the administration's response to the attack became a political hot button. number eight, no freedom here in the hermit kingdom. kim jong un took over for his father. the west hoped there would be change but there wasn't. flexing its military muscle, by place i placing aa satellite in orbit. number seven, brutality by police and private security was out in the open in south africa, where the killing of minors was captured on camera and broadcast everywhere. minors were protesting, demanding higher wages. the price they hado pay shocked the world. >>> number six, ten more years, communist party of china selected new leaders, the secretive process produced a new president, l.a. lakers fan married to a rock star. but china's foreign policies are likely to stay the same. number five, moment morsi, islamist group, became president of egypt. as his predeces
about benghazi. she's a consumer of it and therefore that -- this qualifies her to be secretary of state on fox news. i mean i don't know how much more black and white the hypocrisy -- >> stephanie: as you and others have pointed out, the iraq war obviously cost us god knows how much blood and treasury in the final analysis. the benghazi attack, as horrible as it was compared to the iraq war, not even close right? >> right. so condy rice helped initiate a war plus $3 trillion, 4,000 american lives untold number of iraqi dead and susan rice was reacting to a terrorist attack that killed four americans and in the eyes of the republicans eyes of fox news and the eyes of the right wing crazies these are now equal events. it is -- thankfully, the whole thing seems to have petered out. it has been one of the most frustrating and maddening smear campaigns we've seen in awhile. >> stephanie: it really is. a woman of such obvious inelect and capability and it -- >> also mentioned last week, you know, g.o.p. gets absolutely s
-55-press. and the official report investigation on benghazi is now complete. the report is out. it blames the state garment for what it calls systemic failures across the board on security in libya, not recognizing and realizing how dangerous the country was and not providing enough security for our embassy in tripoli and the consulate in benghazi. they blame the state department. they do not blame susan rice. all right. tha maybe that will close that story once and for all. we will talk about it, take your calls. first, we get the latest todd's news update, lisa ferguson standing buy in los angeles. hey, lisa. good morning. >> hey, bill. good morning, everyone. let me give you a few more details on that report. it is very critical of the state department. an accountability board spearheaded that investigation. according to those results just made public last night, the department did not use enough seasoned security personnel. instead relying too much on untested local militias. the report also blames officials in washington saying they ignored
. >> bill: because of benghazi. >> because of the way the republicans have highlighted this as an issue. john kerry who has been you know the bridesmaid for this position for years and years and years, he is dying for the position. we know that he wants it. he's all lined up and ready to go. it is also very clear senate republicans have made it clear he will sail through a confirmation and that's important. so now it is kind of looking -- by process of elimination that he potentially is back in the front of the line. he remains a top contender. no question. >> bill: would he take defense if he doesn't get state? >> i make no claims to reading the mind of john kerry. he sphnt made himself available to the press to talk about it. >> bill: it would not be a step down to be secretary of defense. >> of course not. he has a lot of experience on foreign policy issues. it would be an appropriate fit. >> bill: no matter what they said in 2004, he is a genuine america war hero. i want to throw that in here.
it up? why'd he go after benghazi for two weeks? why'd he change from business experience? >> i have no idea. and, you know, really you almost saw what happened. it's like all of a sudden they woke up and said my god we can win this thing and didn't keep on the same path. everybody started kind of taking credit for that one good night instead of trying to recreate it night after night. >> let's cut ahead now. i love what you said about david axelrod and saying the guy wouldn't sell his religion. he couldn't sell the good work he did with relief society and looking out for members of his lds group. he couldn't do that without selling the philosophy of the religion? >> there were family and friends that wanted the campaign to emphasize things romney had done. that was who he really was, talk about that. and a at the convention there was an effort to have a moving video. the problem is this ran before the networks broadcast in primetime, the commercial networks. and then in primetime of course was clint eastwood. so the message that got out was not -- >> that was a hail mary, that clint
to first start with benghazi. do you see benghazi as being a turning point of sorts in both kpozing the failures of the obama administration and also kpozing the influence or the lack thereof of america globally? >> well it could well be. you look back on turning points at the moment they occur and realize what happened. the administration has not responded to the attacks. he has not brought the people involved in it to justice of any kind. we haven't retaliated. it is over three months when four americans were killed. i think the lack of response, the lack of interest by much of the mainstream media, the lack of debate about it in the presidential campaign certainly indicate an administration that is very comfortable without paying attention to events in the middle east in particular, comfortable with the prospect of american decline, and comfortable underplaying the continuing threat of international terrorism. and i find that very disturbing. heather: disturbing when we take a larger look at the big picture and some of the issues that we addressed when i was introducing you. long
the consulate in benghazi is bombed, we sit around and talk how do we make sure this doesn't happen again? ramp up security? how do we prevent that from happening. when people have a problem with healthcare, how do you solve the problem. here or with any other rampant shooting that occurs way too much in this country if you even talk about -- try to have a conversation of can gun control play a role, play a factor. you're shouted down. people have called for costas to resign, to be fired for these kinds of things. >> bill: it's true. if there's any mass murder here, you can talk about every aspect of it. trayvon martin, you can talk about every aspect of it. you cannot mention there was a gun involved. same thing with this murder suicide, jason belcher -- javon belcher. right, murder, suicide tragic case. but you can talk about again any aspect of it. were there head injuries involved you know, was she out partying, got home too late. did he crack? were there any signs? but you cannot mention the gun right? you cann
on legal issues fast and furious, benghazi, the way you conducted yourself in front of the nation makes us all proud. jeff couldn't be here. he has passed legislation that would make this nation energy independent. that is pretty impressive for somebody that has been in the house for one term and newly elected. tom, you bring to the table problem solving. you're chairman of the county council. you understand your district has got a lot of opportunity. you're the cash cow for the state. all of us are going to myrtle beach one day. that's the american dream to go to myrtle beach and he brings height to the delegation. so welcome. tim, the only advice i can give you is that you got here by being tim scott, not lindsey graham, not jim demint, just keep being tim scott and that will be good for our state. you have a unique opportunity for the conservative cause. you have unique burdens. i want to help you where i can. anything my office can do to help you get started we will do. the only advice i can give you is just keep being the good person you are. the thing about tim, not only is he good a

. and this president is committed to just that. but the other topics -- benghazi. the state department said secretary clinton received the report from the review board. can you give us the idea of when you expect the president may receive that and what kind of action the white house may take to prevent another terror event? >> i don't have a timetable for you in terms of that process, when the report moves from the state department. the president has looked forward to the review board to work as he looks forward to the completion of the investigation by the fbi. so it is hard to say what action he will take because we have not seen the reports. >> the fbi is still investigating as well. do you have any sense the last time the president got an update from the fbi as to where their investigation of benghazi stance. also, secretary clinton has been ill obviously and no one would expect to testify right now but is the administration committed to have her testify before she leaves office? >> i would ask the state department about her schedule and her illness that she is dealing with. but i certainly am no
if obama chooses her as his next secretary of state. as we've seen since the benghazi attack, mccain is one of rice's harshest critics. the two met late last month along with other senators to discuss rice's television appearances during the aftermath of those september 11th attacks in libya. rice hoped to put mccain's fears at ease but he came out of the meetings saying he only had more questions than when he went in. mccain spokesman says he will seek a spot on the international affairs panel which oversees the state department. republicans have said they would rather see john kerry as circumstance -- secretary of state over susan rice. hillary clinton is still polling very well after her stint with the state department and democrats are practically begging to see her in 2016. according to the latest abc news, "washington post" poll, 57% of people say they would support her run. although abc is reporting today she said she'll most likely devote her time to her husband clinton's foundation to focus on women and girls wo
. >> reporter: at number five, is september 11th attack in benghazi injected foreign policy into the race. >> justice will be done. >> reporter: but a week later the campaign shifted again to that hidden-camera video of romney's comments on the 47%, an instant obama attack ad, and number four among the year's biggest moments. >> there are 47% who are with him, who depend on them. >> reporter: the gop contender needed a breakout moment and got one at number three. >> i love big bird. actually like you, too. >> reporter: the debates -- and president obama's lackluster performance in the fist face-off put romney back in the hunt. the president would have to redeem himself and polls show he did. >> i said if i got bin laden in our sights i would take that shot. >> reporter: but at number two came the mother of october surprises -- sandy. the devastating superstorm put much of the nation's focus on the president's handling of the crisis and the high marks he received from a top romney surrogate, new jersey governor chris christie. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern
. >> this year was marked by a lot of tragedy from aurora, benghazi, and of course sandy hook. stories we all covered. there were a few moments of light. the olympics in london being one of them. all three of us were there. the remarkable opening ceremony with the video of the queen jumping out of the helicopter. there were some international moechl moments we can take away. >> no question. it's always amazing to take a look back. we're going to have -- i've been calling it an epic look back. pull up the chair, get out the popcorn. we'll do that later. >>> also, why the price of ill ma -- milk could soar to $8 >>> coming up, russian president vladimir putin signs a bill overnight banning adoptions to americans. the heartbreaking impact on families across the country. >>> also, the act that will get you a ride from a complete stranger, but is it safe? that story after your local news.
